Though Searcy died unexpectedly in October 2014, family members aim to keep Searcy’s legacy alive through the John B. Searcy Memorial Scholarship at Richmond Community College. The scholarship will be awarded to a graduating high school student who has chosen to continue their education in the criminal justice field at RCC.

The foursome of Will Morgan, Jon Clemmons, Mike Clemmons and Matt McIntyre combined for the winning team score. Brian H. Fournier, Brian M. Fournier, Michelle Jarman and Lauren Fournier teamed up for second-place honors.

The first-place team was awarded Calloway golf bags and sets of golf grips went to the second place team. Prizes also were awarded for for the longest drive and four closest-to-the-pin winners.
